Every day, Anicet Mbida makes us discover an innovation that could well change the way we consume.
This Tuesday, he dwells on the arrival of foldable televisions.
The innovation of the day is something new in television.
After folding screen phones, here are televisions with a folding screen.
What is the point ?
"It's finally solving an old decorating problem. You know that televisions are bigger and bigger and more and more intrusive. Suddenly, when they are turned off, you end up with a huge black screen in your living room. , which isn't very pretty. That's why a lot of people turn on their TVs as soon as they get home. It bothers them to have that big black rectangle in the middle of the room.
There is now a TV over 100 inches, over two meters wide (the size of an overhead projector screen) that will fold up like an accordion to fit 40 inches wide.
When it is turned off, it will seem to have a simple column that is fairly discreet in the room.
But once unfolded, we will have a giant screen of more than two meters.
This is the M1 from C Seed.
Are there no holes in the image where the folds are?
No, because the screen uses a technology called MicroLED.
She cuts the screen into small square tiles which will then fit perfectly.
We find the same technology on video walls in exhibitions in particular.
The quality therefore remains perfect over the entire surface.
Another television manages to hide its big screen.
We have already talked about it, it is an LG model which is able to roll up in its base like a blind.
But all of these technologies are very expensive.
We approach, or even exceed, easily 100,000 euros.
So we hope that prices will drop as quickly as when we went from domed screens to flat screens.
Otherwise, we left to keep our big black rectangles in the living rooms for a while. "
